Should have a sticker inside drivers door with air pressure info.
I would say probably 32-35 psi

Recommended tyre pressures


NEVER use the pressure rating on the tire. That is only the recommended MAX pressure that tire can take. The only tire pressure you should follow is located on the placard either on the inside of the door under the latch, or on the door jam under the latch receiver. Using the tire pressure on the tire can result in poor performance, traction, tire blowouts, uneven tire wear, and poor gas mileage. The manufacturer factors in details the tire could never know, such as weight of the vehicle, alignment specifications, and performance of the vehicle.

What is the right tire air gauge of 1998 sunfire?


Tire pressure should be within 5 psi of the tires recommended max pressure but never higher. All tires have there max pressure stamped on the sidewall of the tire. Never go by the vehicles recommendation for tire pressure, always go by the tire. Some tires have different pressure recommendations than others. 35psi is most common- but some car tires rec. 44psi or more.

What's the recommended tire pressure?


There is a sticker inside the drivers door on every car sold that will tell you the recommended tire pressure. It should look something like this. It's either on the driver door, or on the door jamb.12_31_2012_6_29_49_pm.jpg

At what tire pressure is the tire pressure warning indicator activated


The LOW TIRE PRESSURE warning light will come on when the pressure is 25% below the manufacturer's recommended pressure. If I recall correctly, the 2007 Sonata has a manufacturer's recommended tire pressure of 30 psi. There is a tire label (sticker) on the inside driver's door jamb ('B' Pillar which tells you what the manufacturer's recommend tire inflation pressure should be. Once you have that value, you can calculate 25% of that & find the pressure at which the warning light should come on. NOTE: The TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) does not continually nor constantly scan the sensors in the wheels for this information - once every 3 to 10 minutes.

The sticker with the recommended tire pressure is missing


It is best to use the tire pressure listed on the tire itself. Look for the recommended tire pressure on the tire and also notice the max pressure and then adjust between the two for what gives you the desired ride.

What psi should be in tire's


It all depends on the vehicle you are driving and the tires that are on it. For the most part, you can see what the vehicle manufacturer recommends by checking the tire/vehicle certification label on the driver's door or on the drivers door jamb area. It will tell you the recommended tire size, the maximum load rating and the recommended tire inflation pressure.

Dashboard light (!)


What you are seeing is a low tire pressure light and it will illuminate when the air pressure in any of the tires is above or below the factory recommended pressure. It can also illuminate when there is a sensor that has gone bad or is defective, this usually happens after you have had new tires installed, if the technician damaged one. I would recommend that you first look in the drivers side door jam of the vehicle to see what the recommended tire pressure is and then check all of your tires to see if the pressure incorrect, and if so then fill or let air out of the tire to the recommended psi.After you have done this, drive the vehicle and the light will automatically turn off. If this does not work, then I would recommend taking the vehicle to Toyota and they will be able to pin point which TPS (tire pressure sensor) is not reading correctly and you can then have it replaced. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

I dont know if you are refer to one signal light like this...

If this is right, is the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS) o Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS) are being used on more and more new vehicles. Low tires are potentially dangerous, especially if a vehicle is heavily loaded and traveling at highway speeds during hot weather. A low tire under these conditions is a blowout waiting to happen. The inflation pressure of the tires should be checked regularly, but many motorist do not check their tires. That is why Tire Pressure Monitor Systems are coming into use.

Tires are designed to operate within a certain pressure range. The recommended inflation pressure can usually be found in the vehicle owner's manual and on a decal that may be located in the glove box or door jam. The recommended inflation pressure is designed to give the best combination of ride comfort, load carrying capacity and rolling resistance.


NOTE: The maximum cold inflation pressure on the sidewall of a tire is NOT the recommended inflation pressure. It is a maximum limit for the tire only. The recommended inflation pressure for most passenger car tires is 32 to 34 psi (cold).

Hope helps (rated this).
